Through a newly revised array of school-based programs, Groundswell creates access to challenging, standards-based visual and digital arts learning experiences for public school students across NYC. Whether through the fabrication of community murals or the creation of independent portfolios of artwork, participants in Groundswell’s school-based programs receive engaging creative skill development, seeding a next generation of artists and change-makers.

Groundswell remains committed to responding to the emerging needs and priorities of the youth and communities we serve, and has thus adapted its school-based programs to be facilitated remotely for the 2020-2021 school year. Working in partnership with school communities and a team of professional Teaching Artists, Groundswell is determined to offer safe, virtually accessibly, and high-quality arts-based programming for school-aged youth.
